Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

The property begins with a grand entrance hall which paves the way to the many sociable spaces this stunning country house has to offer.

Seating up to 22 guests and beautifully designed with original chinoiserie-style wallpaper, the large dining room provides the perfect setting to wine, dine and entertain. Once replenished, retire to the cosy drawing room where you can relax and unwind on the sumptuous sofas with the ambience of the crackling log fire.

The house features two kitchens, one for everyday use with everything you will need to self-cater with ease, including a hob, oven, air fryer and bean-to-cup coffee machine, while the second kitchen is equipped for professional catering and large dinner parties (private chefs can be arranged on request).

There are multiple rooms with entertainment for the whole group to enjoy, including a games room with a snooker table, a sauna and treatment room and an eclectic library. Should you wish to work or host meetings throughout your stay, there’s a grand study with a large boardroom table.

The house features eleven luxurious and individually designed en-suite bedrooms. There is one accessible bedroom on the ground floor with a large wet room. Meanwhile, the remaining ten bedrooms are located on the first floor with zip and link king-size or super-king-size beds. All en-suites have either a walk-in shower or a bath and a shower.

Outside, you will have access to four acres of private gardens, with lawned areas, flower beds adorned with seasonal blooms and even a kitchen garden and heritage vegetable plot. It’s the perfect place to gather for BBQs in the summer months, while the secret garden is full of enchanting surprises.

There is a lock box which you can access on arrival.
